4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cool to be rating a beer inspired by FLW less than a mile from his AZ campus. Amber colored pour with a white head. Fresh hops hit the tongue, some grapefruit peel, lemony notes, nice floral hop bill that lends to some grassy notes and then there is a nice backbone of malt. But the hops do steal the show.

Bottle. Orange juice malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and strong bitter spruce/grapefruit peel flavor. Nice body. Good but nothing to set it apart.
